The Puma Basket Classic Mesh is extremely versatile and can be paired with most outfits in your closet. Women can match the low-top footwear with leggings, cropped and capri pants, shorts, and slim jeans. Men can pair the sneaker with ripped jeans, camo shorts, joggers, and virtually any other casual outfit in your wardrobe.

The Puma Basket Classic Mesh Fade has an understated style yet does not fail to catch the eye. The fading color pattern on the shoe is subtly appealing, and the wide laces give it an old-school feel.

The Basket Classic Mesh Fade takes it silhouette from the 1968 basketball warm-up shoe, the Basket Classic. The low-cut shoe was made out of leather and was highly popular due to its street style, sturdiness, and performance. The shoe quickly crossed boundaries from sport to fashion scene and became one of hip hop’s culture icons.

Due to its widespread appeal, the Basket silhouette was released in various Puma Basket Classic colorways and versions including a high-top edition. The Puma Basket Classic Mesh Fade is another version of the iconic footwear which came out in 2016.

Instead of leather, Puma gave this 2016 model a full mesh upper with a gradient color print on the form stripe and midsole.

  • The Puma Basket Classic Mesh Fade uses laces made from recycled material.
  • The shoe has a cushioned inside lining and tough mesh upper.
  • The rubber midsole ensures a great ride while providing cushioning.
